Next up on the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup Virtual Edition calendar is the double-header event at the Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps (Belgium) on Saturday (25 April).

The fight for the title in the digital championship of the real-life Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup guarantees gripping action.

Both have won two of the four races contested so far on the iRacing simulation platform. Thirty-four drivers will go head-to-head in their Porsche 911 GT3 Cup racers at the virtual event on the Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps.

The two 25-minute races will be streamed live . The current Eurosport expert and former Supercup driver Jan Seyffarth provides the race commentary for the “Ardennes rollercoaster” event. The German TV channel Sport1 televises both races live on
